Arab British Chamber of Commerce
43 Upper Grosvenor Street
London, W1K 2NJ, UK
The Arab British Chamber of Commerce is proud to be able to host this exhibition of the work of acclaimed Lebanese sculptor, Alfred Basbous.
The exhibition is an opportunity to showcase his unique talent and will enable the British public to become much more familiar with his work.
The promotion of the creative arts are part of the Chamber’s efforts to build and strengthen friendship between the British and Arab peoples. Our motto, ‘Friendship through Trade’, reflects the core principles that guide the organisation and its activities. The Chamber perceives the arts and creative industries as vital tools for strengthening friendship between different peoples. Sharing and understanding the arts can help build the trust and confidence that are essential for doing business successfully.
Over the decades the Chamber has taken a keen interest in the arts and has been closely involved in promoting Anglo-Arab cultural exchange. We have been able to make use of our strategic position within the business sector to help Arab artists to become more widely known in London and across the UK. Some of the finest examples of work by artists from around the Arab world have been introduced to a British audience through the auspices of the Chamber whose premises have frequently hosted exhibitions of paintings, traditional crafts, fashion and design and jewellery. Handicrafts and artefacts from Palestine have been displayed at the Chamber, as well as the work of exclusive Arab fashion designers and collections of Lebanese handmade costume jewellery.
The chamber also recognises that the creative industries are becoming increasingly important in the modern economy with media, fashion and the fine arts attracting huge audiences. In fact, many of the chamber’s members are working in the fields of the arts and creative industries. The chamber is able to assist them to achieve success in their entrepreneurial activities in this sector as in all others.
The Chamber’s Mayfair premises are very well suited for business events and can accommodate various types of meetings from one-to-one discussions to larger conferences and exhibitions. There are special rates for members. CLICK HERE
